Week 12 Rankings

Thursday, November 17, 2011





Wide Receivers

Justin Blackmon—Oklahoma State at Iowa State. Blackmon is the country’s premiere receiver, having caught 93 balls for 1,142 yards and 14 touchdowns this season for the Cowboys.  Prior to last game, the junior had back-to-back games of 13 grabs and two scores in each.  Blackmon hauled in two more touchdowns last week against Texas Tech, making it 9 straight games with a TD grab.  The Cowboys take on a below-average Iowa State this week, meaning Blackmon has a good chance to extend his multi-TD streak this Friday.


Patrick Edwards—Houston vs. SMU.Edwards is the clear beneficiary of Houston’s unabashed attempt to win quarterback Case Keenum the Heisman.  As his go-to receiver, each game Edwards has the opportunity to catch as many touchdowns as Keenum can throw.  Look no further than the Cougars’ game against Rice in which Keenum had nine touchdown passes, with five of them going to Edwards.  The 6’2 senior had 129 yards and three scores last week against Tulane, and looks to repeat the effort this week against SMU.  It’s clear that it’s going to take a special kind of effort to slow down Houston’s offense, and there’s no reason to think that Edwards and the Cougars will put up anything less than the standard huge numbers this week.


Jeremy Ebert—Northwestern vs. Minnesota. Ebert teed off against a favorable matchup of Rice last week, grabbing seven catches for 208 yards and two touchdowns in a 28-6 win.  The good news for Wildcats fans is that the team faces a similarly porous defense against Minnesota this Saturday.  The Gophers are ranked 95th in the country in total defense and 104th in points allowed, so Ebert should be able to repeat his big receiving day.  The senior wideout has hauled in 58 passes for 924 yards and 10 touchdowns this season for the Wildcats.


Stedman Bailey—West Virginia vs. Pittsburgh. Bailey and quarterback Geno Smith were high school teammates, and this year the duo has reaped the benefits of that chemistry.  The sophomore registered his seventh 100+ yard game of the season last week against Cincinnati and collected his 10th touchdown of the year on a 59-yard strike from Smith.  With Smith putting up 349.7 pass yards per game, Bailey should continue his five-game scoring streak this week against Pittsburgh.

Marquess Wilson—Washington State vs. SDSU. Wilson is one of the few bright spots for the ho-hum Cougars this season.  Wilson is third in the nation in with 1,197 receiving yards and has added 10 touchdowns on the year.  The sophomore is coming off his best game of the year, an eight-catch, 223-yard, 3 touchdown performance last week against Arizona State.  Wilson is no stranger to big games, having a 236-yard effort early in the season against San Diego State.  The team hosts Utah this Saturday, which is good news for Cougar fans.  Six of Wilson’s nine touchdowns have come at home this season, meaning a potential big game for the emerging star.
